    There is a risk of infection any time you get your blood drown. But it's a very small chance. The only pros are that people need your blood every minute of every day or they may die.

    Many years ago I wanted to donate blood. After I was evaluated I was told that because of my military serve in Viet Nam I could not at that time donate. I had to wait 5 years. Then I found out that I needed surgery and that I'd need blood. It was suggested that I donate blood to myself. Blood was taken from me, stored and given back during surgery.

    I don't know. I donate plasma and platelets all the time. The only downside is it takes almost two hours from the time they sit me down in the little creepy room and bombard me with really weird questions to the time the last bit of blood gets pumped back into my arm. Call me a weirdo, but I kind of like the numbing buzzy feeling it gives you. Don't do it if you're not healthy and there aren't any cons.
